ECR Funding Opportunities

Early-Career Researchers affiliated with the Centre for the Humanities and Social Sciences of Health, Medicine and Technology can ask for advice and support when applying to any of the internal and external funding opportunities listed below.

External Funding


Several staff affiliated with CHSSoHMT have received these awards or sat on various fellowship selection panels and are happy to provide expert advice on the application process to prospective candidates.

The deadlines for many of these schemes are just once per year and the applications can take a long time to prepare - so start planning your applications at the earliest opportunity. If you know an existing staff member with whom you would like to work, then you can contact them directly.  If not, or if you have any general enquiries, then we suggest that you contact the research and impact officer for your faculty.

Internal Funding

There are a variety of internal opportunities to which ECRs and PGRs affiliated with CHSSoHMT can apply. These include the Early Career Researchers and Returners Fund, Public Engagement Grants, the Santander Travel Grants and internal doctoral and post-doctoral funding. Sign up to the CHSSoHMT ECR mailing list (email s.solnick@liverpool.ac.uk) or follow us on Twitter (@livunihmt) to receive updates about funding opportunities.
